Cowboys first-round pick Dez Bryant was limited in practice this week with an ankle injury and head coach Wade Phillips was worried about the young receivers availability for tomorrow night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Everyone can now breathe a sigh of relief as Michael Lombardi of NFL Network. Bryant has also said that he will be able to go.
“My ankle’s not fine, but it’s a lot better,” Bryant said. “I can deal with it. . . . I’ll be ready. We knew what the situation was. We knew what to do to treat it and everything. I got the mental reps, the meetings, got all of that.”
Bryant has been impressive in his first few games as a pro. He has 17 catches for 180 yards on the season and has contributed on special teams with a punt return for a touchdown.
